Temporary certificates that will not be renewed

This communication is intended to remind stakeholders that the following temporary certificates will not be renewed beyond January 31, 2021:

  • TU 0750.1: Training

To ensure compliance with the TDG Regulations, stakeholders must address any existing gaps with TDG Regulations before January 31, 2021. This may include:

  • ensuring that all employees are trained as per the TDG Regulations and hold a valid training certificate
  • ensuring that all MOCs used to transport dangerous goods have been tested and inspected in accordance with relevant standards and display current and valid inspection and test markings
